Brilliant song off the Fallen Empires album, another Snow Patrol classic


Verse:
   F               Dm
If you were here beside me
  C               Bb 
Instead of in New York
       F                Dm        C     Bb 
If the curve of you was curved on me 

    F                Dm
I'd tell you that I loved you 
  C             Bb
Before I even knew you 
        F                Dm             C    Bb
Cause I loved the simple thought of you 

       F                Dm
If our hearts are never broken
             C                 Bb 
Well there's no joy in the mending 
        F                     Dm           C    Bb      
There's so much this hurt can teach us both

               F                    Dm
Though there's distance and there's silence
     C                     Bb 
Your words have never left me 
            F                 Dm        C    Bb
They're the prayer that I say every day. 

Chorus:
     Bb       C         Dm         F
Come on, come out, come here, come here
Come on, come out, come here, come here
Come on, come out, come here, come here
Come on, come out, come here, come here

    Bb        C
The lone neon nights
        Dm          F
And the ache of the ocean
        Bb             C           Dm     F 
And the fire that was starting to spark 
Bb        C             Dm           F
I miss it all, from the love to the lightning
        Bb              C        Dm     F 
And the lack of it snaps, me in two 

Verse:
   F             Dm 
If you were here beside me
   C              Bb 
Instead of in New York 
       F                   Dm          C     Bb
Of the arms you said you'd never leave 
    F                  Dm
I'd tell you that it's simple
           C          Bb 
And it was only ever us
         F                 Dm       C     Bb 
There is nowhere else that I belong

Chorus:
     Bb       C          Dm        F
Come on, come out, come here, come here
Come on, come out, come here, come here
Come on, come out, come here, come here
Come on, come out, come here, come here
     
     Bb        C 
The lone neon nights
        Dm          F
And the ache of the ocean 
        Bb            C           Dm      F
And the fire that was starting to spark 
Bb        C            Dm           F
I miss it all from the love to the lightning 
          Bb          C         Dm     F  
And the lack of it snaps, me in two
     Bb        C 
Just give me a sign 
           Dm          F
There's an end and a beginning
       Bb          Dm             C     F 
To the quiet chaos driving me mad 

     Bb        C 
The lone neon nights
        Dm          F
And the want of the ocean 
        Bb            C           Dm      F
And the fire that was starting to go out

There is wrong order of chords during
"To the quiet chaos driving me mad"

There is "F Am G C" and should be "F G Am C" ;-)

Anyway very nice tab ;-)
